Ant+ Cadence display - cheap?

OK Guys, I am wondering about a small computer for when I do the odd tri. I don't need GPS/Recording I'll use the Fenix for that. I am just thinking of having an easy cadence display on something I can leave on the bike when it's racked and it be cheap enough to not be a tempting thing to steal, and no great loss if it is stolen.

Cheers,
Paul.

    Cateye Strada Cadence for £25

    Not sure I'd want to leave it on the bike - anything easily removable is too tempting for the thieving scrotes out and about these days.

    How about one of these. I have used one for a while, works fine. Not cheap but might be open to offers as they aren’t made any more. Mine was bought as a present. They were a lot more expensive when they came out. Gets decent reviews. Makes a good everyday watch aswell.
    I’m not using mine anymore for cadence etc as I just ride now without bothering about such things. In fact not used a computer at all for a while .Very liberating! Would sell for £35 if you are interested.

    Thanks for the suggestions - I can't see any reference to the strada supporting ANT+ - can anyone confirm? I could widen it to BT as aswell if I shuffle sensors round.

    The watch - I would already have my Fenix on my wrist, just looking for something simple that I can have on the stem/bars just showing cadence.

    The Strada uses its own wired sensor (which makes it less stealable too).

    This is probably about as cheap as you get for what you are after - https://www.tredz.co.uk/.Giant-Neos-ANT ... _60533.htm

    Alternatively you could get an edge 25 or one of the cheap lezyne units.

    Probably makes most sense to find someone selling their old edge 500 imho.

    Thanks. The used edge 20/25 was something I was considering. That giant looks interesting.

    Fairly sure the edge 20 can't use ant+ sensors so no good to you.

    I wouldn’t bother. Cadence is what it is.

    As NapD said, I wouldn't really bother getting a computer just for cadence. If you are set on it though:

    Also worth considering the bryton rider range. They do have gps which I know you said you don't need, but are really good value. The newer models seem to have switched to Bluetooth but the older models have ant+ as well.
